I am currently an SDE at Amazon in India. And planning to pursue masters in computer science next year. Had a difficult time selecting universities. I am planning to join FAANG after masters in USA. Can you please suggest me some universities which have good career opportunities?

Thanks in advance. :-)

    The right question is, will you be lucky to get the H1B?

    Purdue University attracts the most number of international students among all US universities. Unlike other universities, they have not increased tuition for last 8 years. It's in a low cost of living area, and all the big tech companies recruit from there. Purdue is the most value for money engineering college in USA.

    I went to NYU tandon, best decision ever. Easy to get into and I get calls from all major companies because they think NYU is a great University.

    All the answers look good, but do you want to do MS just to join FAANG in US. Wait for an internal relocation through Amazon, you would anyways meet your goal

      Yes. But considering the number of rejections these days, i think ms is the best route.

      I think visa wise you have more choices than just h1b when transfering.

      I've heard that internal relocations are usually offered less TC, is that true?

    Georgia Tech CS students get 100% tution waivers in 2nd and 3rd semesters via TAship.
    Also u get 1k$ per month stipend on TAship.

      This is true in every school i know of... Provided A) you do get a TA ship (they normally reserve them for PhD students in most schools) B) the TAship you get is 50% TAship. Not all TAships are created equal. Some require more time and effort (and department budget) than other do. Only 50% will waive tuition and give you stipend.

      At Gatech, almost all MSCS students get Taship in 2,3 semesters which gives 100% tution waivers along with monthly stipend.
      This is definitely not the case with other universities.

    I am also leaving Microsoft for Masters. But I am not a SDE, and I joined Microsoft this year from college.

    If I was in your place, I won't be doing Masters. Instead, I would have tried to switch to Microsoft, since it is easier to network inside Microsoft, plus your TC will significantly jump.
